Julia Roberts Meets Messi


Most people are left starstruck when they meet Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but even they were left in awe after meeting Hollywood royalty after the Clasico.

Messi and Ronaldo both met actress Julia Roberts following the clash in Madrid on Sunday, won 3-2 by Barcelona after Messi scored late with his 500th goal for the club. Barcelona showed off Messi with Roberts in a photo captioned: ‘And the Oscar (always) goes to Leo Messi.’

They captioned the post: ‘Check out Julia Roberts’ Bernabeu experience’, and the Academy Award winner certainly seemed to have a good time.

She told the Real Madrid page: ‘I’m so excited, my whole family is here and we are just thrilled to be here’ - although she made no comment on which one of Ronaldo or Messi was her favourite.
